20 Favorite Author Tidbits

Vanessa at 2 Yrs 5 Months Old GOOD PicHello there my lovelies ❤

I’ve been updating my blog and shifting widgets around for days.  I am still fussing with the menu, but you will now find a “categories” section on the right hand side.  It’s incomplete, but it will allow you to quickly search for posts under specific topics.

I’m rearranging my bookshelves so that I can make room for all of the books I received as Christmas gifts! .. Books are located by importance .. Top shelf to the bottom.  I have a five-year-old.  Enough said.

I am going to list twenty (believe it or not, this was originally a “ten” post .. not a “twenty”) authors that you can readily find on my bookshelves, and then I will name my favorite book ( and if I can’t take it .. a runner-up) by that author.  This post is going to be difficult 🙂  It’s like asking someone what his or her favorite movie is heh

  1. Anne Rice – The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty and Interview with a Vampire
  2. Stephen King – The Dark Half and Tommyknockers
  3. Christine Feehan – Dark Prince and Wild Rain
  4. Janet Evanovich – Lean Mean Thirteen
  5. JK Rowling – The Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince
  6. Dean Koontz – Shattered
  7. Sherrilyn Kenyon – Acheron
  8. Laurell K. Hamilton – The Lunatic Cafe
  9. JR Ward – Dark Lover
  10. JD Robb – Naked in Death

  12. Karen Marie Moning – Dark Fever and Dreamfever
  13. Heather Graham – Deadly Night
  14. Susan Krinard – Prince of Wolves

REVIEW: Lair of the Lion by Christine Feehan

Lair of the Lion is a fascinating paranormal romance rerelease by Christine Feehan.

As with most of Feehan’s books, Lair of the Lion is filled with lust, betrayal, rejection, mystery, enemies and jealousy.  Would we have it any other way?

Isabella Vernaducci escaped a hunting party that was searching for her brother, and with only his help did she manage to elude the soldiers.  Spending every cent, she desperately sought Nicholai DeMarco, the one man whom all other dons feared.

The curse that plagues their valley, and the gossip that whispers thoroughly the villages and hallways, leave little to be imagined.  Other Dons and villagers believe that the valley and lands from the DeMarco were cursed, protected by exotic and dangerous animals…More importantly, that the animals were controlled by Don DeMarco himself.

Nicholai DeMarco is an interesting character, although a bit overdone.  A man suffering from a curse that has survived throughout the generations of his family.  Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.  Wielding armies with commanding confidence, his successful protection that he has continuously offered his family, friends and servants, goes unappreciated due to his hideous appearance.  Self-isolation was the only protection he could promise.

Striving for revenge to punish the man who rapes innocent women and children, secrets go unnoticed and that’s where the misunderstandings and betrayals start.  And all along, he tries to send her away.

“I know the lions refused to let me leave through the pass.  I know I’m supposed to be with you.”  Isabella wrapped her arms around herslef to keep from shaking.  “It is the only thing I know for certain, Nicholai.”  She looked up at him with her big, innocent eyes.  “You’re the breath in my body, the warmth and joy in my heart.  Wherever you sent me, I would wither and die.  If not my body, at least my spirit.  Better to have joy burning hot and bright, if only for a short time, than to die a long endless death.”

This book was okay…I suppose.  Add a few twists, and I would say that it is virtually identical to the Scarletti Curse.

I recommend this book to Feehan fans and anyone with a paranormal romance fancy.  Strong descriptive violent content as well as moderate sexual content .. the scenes are yummy in a subtle and not nearly enough to make me smile kinda way.

I am glad that I purchased this book, but unfortunately, I have NO room on my bookshelves!  They are filled, stacked and double filled (Rows covering other rows) .. In need of bookcase donations! Ha!

~happy reading!
